The article presents information on Norwegian fjords and the Baltic Sea as ocean travel destinations. As stated, while the Baltic attracts experienced clients out to discover new places, fjords draw older people looking for a sedate cruise. Kathryn Beadle, sales and marketing director at Hurtigruten, says travelers choose fjords for the scenery, but they are also drawn because it's a safe destination, and close to Great Britain. Offerings by various travel companies are also discussed.
